Photographer's Note

The war has been stopped many years ago but the green line is still on the maps of Levkosia and whole Cyprus. Somewhen the noisy central street Ledra was lied here, there were houses, shops and cafes. Today nobody can walk along the former street, only the grass grows here and just sometimes UN patrol car drives through the lanes between the ruins. As close as hundred meters between the greek and turkish observation posts but nobody could cross that space during the last forty years. EU enlistment of Greek Cyprus has not brought almost anything new. Whether the situation to the best with the introduction into EU of Turkey will change?

The shot was taken under agreement of man with a machine-gun. I suppose after the holidays we have to remember the armored issues which still remain on the planet, if even it is not discussed in the news programs. Thanks for all of your comments and regards.
